"Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced" - James Baldwin

Hopkins and the dessicated Labour Party apparatchiks
you heard of Mathew Hopkins? He was the Witchfinder General at the
time of the English Civil War; tasked with proving that the accused
(most of them women) had engaged in a ‘covenant with the devil’.
Methods of investigation included sleep deprivation, cutting the arm
with a blunt knife, and lowering the accused into water. Yes you
guessed it. If you drowned you were innocent!
were said to have the “Devil’s Mark”, a mole or birthmark. If
lacking these, ‘witch prickers’ were employed to prick the
accused with special needles to find them.
God we live in better times.
after Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader of the UK Labour Party a
right-wing witchunt started under the guise of ‘anti-semitism’.
Jews were not going to escape this and anti-Zionist Jews, Jackie
Walker, David Rosenberg, Tony Greenstein and Moshe Machover (since
reinstated) headed the list. If Einstein were still alive he would
have joined them.
Notably Jews have taken a central and brave role in exposing the connections between Israel and US police forces. Sir Keir Starmer should be advised to put down his witch pricker and read this report from Jewish Voice for Peace
MP Chris Williamson and former London Mayor, Ken Livingstone, were
soon to be added.
is the ‘Devil’s Mark’ they all share? They have dared to
criticise the state of Israel and speak up for the Palestinians. Not coincidentally, all of them were
and are actively anti-racist.
Prof Norman Finkelstein, who lost his job at Chicago’s DePaul
university for his ‘anti-semitism’ puts it powerfully about Ken
Livingstone’s expulsion, saying:
I find that obscene. It’s doubtful these Holocaust-mongers have a
clue what the deportations were, or of the horrors that attended
them. I remember my late mother describing her deportation. She was
in the Warsaw Ghetto. The survivors of the Ghetto Uprising, about
30,000 Jews, were deported to Maijdanek concentration camp. They were
herded into railroad cars. My mother was sitting in the railroad car
next to a woman who had her child. And the woman – I know it will
shock you – the woman suffocated her infant child to death in front
of my mother. She suffocated her child, rather than take her to where
they were going. What
are they doing? Don’t they have any respect for the dead? All these
desiccated Labour apparatchiks, dragging the Nazi holocaust through
the mud for the sake of their petty jostling for power and position.
Have they no shame?
